Pet grooming can be the ultimate of frustrations for pet owners. If you're a new owner looking to groom your dog for the very first time, or a more experienced one in search of a few pointers, here are a few things that you might be concerned with.

Would you like it if you could never take a bath, clean your hair or trim your nails? Of course not! Now imagine how your dog feels? Good grooming is healthy and happy part of his life, too.
Some grooming steps like brushing can be handled at home. Performing this regularly will not only keep your dog looking good, but will also give you a chance to inspect your dog for swelling, fleas, and possible infections.
Be Careful With How You Treat It
It makes dog owners crazy, the dog that has skin that is so itchy and uncomfortable that the dog is constantly scratching at itself, using paws and teeth to worry at the area until the dog has removed all the hair from the area and the remaining flesh is raw and bleeding. This bald area, a spot that most dog owners call a hot spot, is an eyesore and causes some dog owners such acute embarrassment that they are unable to take their dogs out in public. Other dog owners are steadily driven mad by the sound of their dog constantly ripping and tearing at its flesh, the sound of the scratching is frequently accompanied by the dog whining and crying as they rip at their flesh.
An Important Part of Your Cat's Grooming Regime
There is very little worse for a family then living in a house with a cat that is suffering from a flea infestation. It's bad enough that your cat is always scratching and clawing at itself, even ripping large hunks of hair and flesh from its body in an attempt to rid itself of the biting insects. But unfortunately there is nothing to prevent the fleas from staying on the cat. If the problem is left untreated, you could quickly find that your entire house is full of fleas, and that you are being bitten nearly as often as your pet house cat.
